We live with the conviction that God loves people, and that we can radiate his light and love in our local communities as well as in communities around the world through strategic partnerships.
Little Stars Parent & Toddler Group
Little Stars is held for parents, carers and pre-school children on Wednesdays during term time from 10.00 to 11.30am.
Little Stars provides an ideal space for the children with activities and space for children to ‘let off steam’ with ride-on toys. Every week there is a time of singing with the children including songs with a simple faith basis. There is also a story time when this is suitable, as well as crafts and additional activities from time to time.
Our aim is to provide a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for adults to relax whilst meeting new people and for children to play and make new friends.
During the session there is plenty of tea, coffee and there is also a snack time for the children.
All our team are Christians, and as they are keen to support children and parents and carers they also include a simple prayer as part of the sessions and are available to pray with people should they request this.
There is no charge to attend Little Stars Parent & Toddler Group.

CAP Money Course
CAP Money is a revolutionary money management course that teaches budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that really works. This course will help anyone to get improve their understanding and control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt.
We’ve run this course several times and have already heard encouraging stories of how much help it has been to people from all backgrounds. CAP Money is a three session course devised by the award winning charity, Christians Against Poverty.
Recognising that people are individually gifted and inspired, we are keen to bring together people who share interests in particular areas of life and community. As a result we are forming groups that focus in on a specific area of life in our community (e.g. our local neighbourhoods, homelessness).
Whether part of a formal group or not, we believe that our workplaces, homes, schools, and neighbourhoods can become places of transformation as we love and serve these communities.
People from TWCF are involved in serving in many aspects of the local community in addition to their employment, below is a sample of some of these:
- Street Pastors & Prayer Pastors
- Churches Winter Shelter
- Street Teams
- Debt Advice
- Supporting local schools
- Duke of Edinburgh scheme
- Local politics
- Crisis Recovery & Recovery Courses
- Churches For Tunbridge Wells
- Tunbridge Wells Fellowship of Evangelicals
With international partners being supported in at several continents around the world we believe in taking an active role in the world in which we live. From hands on projects which improve people’s lives through the provision of resources and written materials in their own language through to providing clean sustainable drinking water, those we work in partnership with are bringing the values of God’s kingdom to people’s lives in a meaningful and powerful way.
We are currently working in support of the following projects and people around the world:
Albania – Shkendije
We support the ministry of Shkendije (Spark Ministries), working with children in Albania. Based in the capital Tirana, and with projects elsewhere in Albania, we’ve been delighted to be able to send individuals and teams to Albania to work with Shkendije as be part of supporting their ongoing work and ministry. For further information please see the Shkendije wesite here.
Global – World in Need
We support the excellent work of World in Need International, a Christian charity which aspires to see communities transformed by aid and education. World in Need believes that even the poorest communities can find hope and freedom when they are empowered to rise above their circumstances. Working to direct resources to where they are most needed, World in Need now works in over twenty countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East. For more information please see the World in Need website here.
Kenya & Sudan (SIM)
Our global partners working with SIM have been based in Sudan and Kenya and are now working out of the UK. Through providing specialise personnel skills alongside local knowledge and experience our partners have been able to see communities radically changed through their work in many different ways.
Our partners in Brazil are particularly focused on the work of church planting in a wide range of communities. Each of these new churches is designed to be self supporting and to bring blessing and hope to the communities they serve. Many lives are being changed day by day in urban and rural settings.
Our global partners in Pakistan are involved in the translation and distribution of educational literature. Their work has supported communities with resources which they would not otherwise have had access to. Their valuable work in bringing light and hope to people’s lives.
We recently sent one of our church to work with Iris ministries in Mozambique. Working at the Zimpeto base, Helen is involved with looking after the many visitors to the base. You can find out more and follow Helen’s progress by following her blog which is found here
